Love that dissolves stereotypes and limits

For some adults the opportunity to continue their education can be a lifeline to keep them from sinking in poverty. But when adults go back to school, old fears and limitations may try to follow them. Adult educator Malcolm Leith finds that a spiritual sense of love can help break limits for teacher and student.

Dr. Leith is director of academic programs in the AIM Training Programs of the District of Columbia, Inc. His work includes teaching English, reading, and mathematics. The students, who range from teenagers to senior citizens, are either underemployed or unemployed. Many have not graduated from either high school or junior high. Most of the students are women—often single heads of household. Some are welfare mothers. Some are homeless.
